Interesting speculation... I wonder if this means that the 767ER's will be helped by the recent trend in long-haul aircraft to increase seat pitch (or expand "business class seating") at the expense of a couple rows of seats? I think that United and American both announced plans to do this on their long-hauls; I assume the competition will follow.
